Warning after upgrading to Windows 10

Veeam Logoby marius roma » Wed Sep 23, 2015 9:16 am

After upgrading from Windows 8.1 to Windows 10 I gos a warning saying that "Disk 0 layout change detected, resetting changed block tracking for all volumes on this disk": what is the meaning of the message?
Should I do anything?
Are the old restore point still valid?
Should I delete them and restart the backup cycle from scratch?
Regards

Hi,

resetting changed block tracking for all volumes on this disk
This message means that changed block tracking was reset therefore lost track of incremental changes which implies that next backup session will perform full backup of all volumes that reside on Disk 0.

Thank you.

Thank you for the message.
So, my only concern will be having enough free space on the NAS to create a new .vbk file, is it correct?

Correct. Also keep in mind the amount of time needed to create a .vbk + IOps.

Not correct, actually. It's not going to be a full back up (.vbk) – just a huge incremental backup (.vib).

Not necessarily huge, as only the system disk will have major changes due to OS upgrade.

But indeed, the main point here is that even without changed block tracking, the produced backup file will still be incremental. It is just that VEB will need to read the entire contents of all volumes to determine what blocks have changed since the last backup.

I have deleted the endpoint backup job from the Veeam Backup and Replication server repository and created a new job for the Endpoint Windows 10 PC and I continue to get this error.
I have several Windows 10 PCs that I get this error on. I was tired of the Endpoint backups alerting me that the HP recovery partition was getting full and I did not need the recovery partitions anyway since they were for Windows 7. I deleted the HP recovery partitions and extended the C: partition with the available space on some of them.
How do I completely reset the endpoint job so I will stop getting these annoying messages?
